Dont think you would get ES100 these days.

G111's are for performance rather than comfort. Would suggest XM1 for WagonR.

Like jkdas mentioned, the ES100 s are hard to comeby . The choice of tires depends on what you are looking at and for which car.


hey jkdas like the profile icon..any idea on which truck that is ? is it the tatra?

I'm using Michelin XM1 - 185/70/R13 in my Honda city along with Goodyear GT 770+
XM1 is far superior to goodyear(in terms of Braking, handling, Noise). Go with Michelin

Since u are shortlisting all torque kings i guess u would be better off with a performance tyre. U may consider Michelin PPs in 14" and S drives in 15".

BTW 195/60-14 would be a wrong upsize for Swift.

Goodyear Eagle gets munched too early ( Clocks in around 25k )

G3s are a good option, expensive but more on the performance side.

XM 1 should be a good bet.

Ishan - iraghava is your best man to give you advise on this.

First decide the car & then we can give you the best suggestions for what would be the best tyre for you. Reasons being that some treads are available in some sizes & to determine which size you need we need you to confirm what car you're buying!

Hope it makes some sense!!

I spoke to tyre dealer he has a doubt that the Hub size (wheel offset)Inset/outset might have some difference between Verna and GetZ rims.

i checked the Verna rims .
Verna Rims - 14*5.5J W1L 07 12 LP 12 20 46 52910 op10C B A
from this the rims are 14 inches and 5.5J
no idea about remaining letters/Numbers.
if any one knows about the GetZ Crdi rims for these punching letters plz let me know.
